hmmm, maybe because there's actually a basketball team in Canada named the Raptors?

you send a link to the rankings but that doesn't bother me at all. Does Australia even have a team? Before you answer that, I don't care, you guys are irrelavent.

1. The inventor of basketball was Canadian.

2. We have a franchise.

3. The back to back reigning NBA MVP is Canadian.

Considering our population that's pretty good IMO, I mean we're ahead of countries like Brazil which has many times our number of citizens.

I follow basketball. Australians are decent at basketball and are indisputably better than Canadians. Have been for a very long time. The NBA is the premier basketball competition in the world, why wouldn't I follow it?

Why do American soccer fans follow the English Premier League while virtually ignoring the MLS? Because as fans we want to see the best players and the best teams.

Even two prepubescent Canadian girls should be able to follow that.

Am I missing something here? Have been for a very long time? How many Australians have been in the NBA? 5? if that?

Jamaal Magloire
Steve Nash
Rick Fox
Todd Macullough
Denham Brown
Bill Wennington

just to name the ones that come to mind immediately

Australian basketball is at one of its lowest points right now, but we're still ranked higher than you. And we have been for ages.

If Australia player Canada right now, Australia would win easily. Steve Nash or no Steve Nash.

Olympic results:

1992: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketb...ummer_Olympics
'96: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketb...ummer_Olympics
'00: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketb...ummer_Olympics
'04: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketb..._2004_Olympics

Australia also ranked higher at the last world championships (Canada didn't qualify for the tournament).

15 years is a long time.
